Lassen Star Party 2015

For the third consecutive year, the ASN participated in the Lassen Volcanic Dark Sky Festival. The 2015 event was held in Lassen National Park from August 7 through 9. Shown are some of the many ASN telescopes set up at the Bumpass Hell parking lot, at an elevation of 8,200 ft. The park was packed with visitors from the U.S. and around the world who came to appreciate the night sky. Although the first night was cloudy, this event proved once again to be a premier opportunity for ASN members to perform public outreach in an exceptional setting.  Objects viewed ranged from Saturn to galaxies, globular clusters, emission nebulae, and Pluto.  Several early Persid meteors were spotted as well.
